Justice League star Henry Cavill gets the classic Christopher Reeve Superman look in a new concept for the DC Extended Universe.
Although fans are still waiting to see Henry Cavill return to reprise is role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe, this fan edit imagines the British star with the look of legendary actor Christopher Reeve. Cavill previously revealed revealed he’d felt compelled to comment on the rumors circulating about his DC role, but felt it would go against everything that Superman stood for to wade into the debate about whether or not he’d parted ways with Warner Brothers.
The concept design comes from a digital artist known as ‘jscomicart’ on Instagram and replaces Superman star Christopher Reeve with Henry Cavill. It shows off the modern Last Son of Krypton combined with Reeve in a seamless way, blending the best of both eras of the character. David S. Goyer recently discussed Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, explaining what the alternate ending to the story would’ve looked like. Take a look at the “retro” redesign of Cavill in the artwork below.
